In this episode, we begin our “Understanding Exercise” series with Part 1: Movement Patterns.

I break down which categories common exercises would fall under, to help you understand exercise and see that everything you do inside of a training environment has options.

In order to take our training, our health, our physiques, and our education further, we must understand why we have such exercises. To understand patterns of movement necessary for health, progression, and physique, means better results, more options, and more fun.
